Police arrived to find a large crowd assembled at a party, according to the D.A.'s office.

A young male victim, later identified as Monteiro-Terry, was on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

All three men are facing charges based on evidence collected during a monthslong investigation, the D.A.'s office said.

Authorities interviewed witnesses, reviewed video surveillance footage, and collected physical evidence during the investigation.

Colon was arrested without incident on Friday evening, and Vasquez was taken into custody on Saturday.

Both men are set to be arraigned Monday.

Meanwhile a D.A.'s office spokesperson confirmed that state and Brockton police continue to search for Cotton.
